Re: Priscilla Hon

^ Yes, she got discouraged throughout, but atleast it never really affected her game.

Saw Hon come back from 3-4, to win the first set with some superb play mixed with loose errors. The Russian was just solid but eventually ground Hon down with her consistency and greater strength. Hon has every shot in the book and a very complete player at the age of 14. Can even volley and knows how to really kill a mid court ball. But being so young only time will tell if she becomes a top 100, 50, 20 player. She looks capable, but how she develops over the next 5-7 years is anyone’s guess, going by Australia’s recent strike rate.

There were a flurry of breaks in the 2nd set. Hon got back from 0-3 to 3-4, and looked capable of even winning the match. But dropped serve with some errors to 3-5 and that was the match. I think the mental effort it took to win the first set and climb back into the 2nd took its toll as muich as the physical effort.

Was sitting near Paul Kilderry, I think he is Hon’s manager. At 14 y/o she has a manager… lol…. Obvious TA have a lot of faith in this girl. And from what I saw today she worth the time and investment.

As far as I know, those events are classified as premier event, players not reaching 15 years of age are not eligible to play. I think that is the main reason Priscilla was not granted wild cards for those events. I hope that helps!

From what I saw, shes just like a teenager. Gets angry and fustrated when is losing, when hits a winner fistpumps and come on. After her match v Sally Peers she didn't seem so happy. I guess she was relieved to win it and tired though.

What I liked is that she seemed a little despondent during the quallies match but at no time did I think it affected her game. She doesn't throw points away by being angry or upset.

The physicality of yesterday's match was something Hon hadn't faced before. The Russian was prepared to stay out there all day and eventually wore her down.

Re: Priscilla Hon

How tall is Hon? I've only seen brief highlights of her play, and couldn't really tell. At 14 you would think she would have some growth in her but plenty of girls stop growing by that age.

I think she is around 170 cm at the moment. Any idea at what age girls stop growing taller?

I believe the bones tend to fuse at around 15 years old for girls. Hopefully she can grow another few inches. When you see girls like Madison Keys with their physique and power you can see the direction the womens game is going.
